In His Own Quiet Way

This is a good song when you want to quiet down and —-
just —
be —
Please give it a listen, then let’s chat about blessing.

Quiet blessing

For many of us, the reason we believe the Bible is true is because of the way it describes the kinds of problems people face and the soundness of the solutions it spells out. When we read in the Bible about people feeling empty and not being able to solve that by feeding on worldly solutions, the Bible rings true to us. When we read we need a savior to rescue and complete us, we know it speaks the truth. When we receive Jesus Christ as Lord and experience peace only the Prince of Peace brings, the pages of the Bible light up for us with life and truth.

In John 14 Jesus says,

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

When we actually experience the wholeness and peace described in the Bible, and the peace Jesus brings, we are sold. We gain confidence the Bible is what God says it is. We begin to see in it God’s will and justice, His love and goodness, His unique authority. We know He is God, and we begin to understand what a privilege it is to be His people.

Blessing … and blessings

At first I thought it odd the songwriter wrote “blessing” rather than “blessings”. But it makes sense — we crave God’s blessing — his approval on our lives. We want to hear God say, “This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased.” All the more we want to know how to live so God is delighted to bless us with His approval. He promises to show us how. What a wonderful relationship our Heavenly Father offers us. Fellowship with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ, and with other believers, too!

I John writes the promise this way:

That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

As we get to know the things of God through the scripture, we get to enjoy all that fellowship. May we so live that we enjoy God’s blessing — and COUNT OUR BLESSINGS, ever mindful that God is good — always, and blesses us in His own quiet way.

God bless you lots

LYRICS: Thank Him For His Blessing
Song by Lee Russell & Al Rainy

Thank Him for His blessing
Ev’ry single day,
For He has surely blessed you
In His own quiet way
Thank Him for forgiveness
For the times you’ve gone astray,
Believe and He’ll forgive you
In His own quiet way.

Do this and you’ll find
That when you thank Him you’ll receive
All the good that’s in His heart is yours,
If you’ll only believe.
Thank Him for His blessing,
Don’t forget to pray,
For He has surely blessed you
In His own quiet way

    When a believer husband and wife were taking me to, or returning from, a believer’s get together, I fell asleep. When I woke up, it was to hear them sharing John 14:27 with each other. I had never heard it before. It really stuck with me because I was going through some rough, trying times. It is the one verse I re-temorized that has helped me through many problems I’ve had in my life. I am so blessed I can share it with those who are going through hard times in their lives as well.

    I don’t remember where we were going or coming from or the believer’s names. But I sure remember that verse and how I first learned about it.
